Financial Services

Safe, secure and seamlessly integrated cross-channel communications for forward-thinking financial services organisations.

The future of banking is centred, almost exclusively, around consumers’ mobile devices. Consumers expect to be able to authenticate their identity, open new accounts, take out loans, and deposit checks by photographing them, all from their mobile devices. But this growing expectation for unparalleled mobile connectivity means that banks, credit-card and insurance companies need to select the right technology to look after their growing communication programmes.

Engage Hub has been working with some of the world’s most successful financial institutions to deliver unparalleled cross-channel customer service whilst also streamlining operational efficiencies. Take a closer look at some of our most popular solutions:

Protect

Protect your customers with
two-factor authentication


A transaction authentication number (TAN) is issued as a form of a one-time password (OPT) to authorise a payment, this is sent by SMS or a Push Notification to the customers’ mobile phone. When the OTP is delivered by SMS, a call is bridged between the banks call centre and customer’s mobile phone, the customer is instructed by a pre-recorded voice message to enter the TAN into another device.

feedback

Gather valuable customer feedback
in real-time


Use real-time events such as account activations and branch visits to send SMS, email, web and pre-recorded voice surveys to customers as a great way of gathering valuable customer feedback. Dive deeper into customer insight and enhance the quality of your data by applying logic that alters the behaviour of your survey in real-time, based on your customers responses.

Self-service

Self-service card activation
centred on the mobile phone


Use SMS, email or push notifications to automate card activation by issuing a unique access code instead of relying on costly call centre agents. This is a proven way of speeding up card activation and account set-ups.

crisis

Cross-channel
crisis management


Our Synapse technology can automatically select the communication channel that elicits the quickest response from each customer, ensuring your most important alerts are received and read instantaneously.

fraud

Cross-channel
fraud detection


Through our range of standardised APIs, Engage Hub receives notifications in real-time that a suspicious transaction has taken place. This notification triggers an automated SMS, email, push notification, voice call or messenger which is instantly sent to your customer, depending on their channel preference or your predefined rules.

Automate

Automate payment reminders,
claim management & complaint handling


Speed up the payment collection, claim management and complain handling process while reducing operational costs by automating the delivery of personalised SMS messages containing links to bespoke landing pages, designed within Engage Hub’s landing page builder.

Take a look at how it’s being done really well.

With Engage Hub, MBNA successfully protects its customers with intelligent voice, SMS and email alerts:

  • Recent SMS surveys (sent using Engage Hub) revealed a 100% customer delight score as a direct result of the newly implemented fraud alert system.
  • MBNA was awarded ‘The Best Technology Initiative of The Year’ because of the solution at the prestigious Annual Card & Payments Awards 2015.
  • MBNA has directly created an incremental increase in retail volume by processing genuine transactions and immediately reactivating cards, thus reducing fraud and increasing.

Working with Engage Hub, KBC Bank has made mobile banking safer and easier than ever before:

  • The results from a highly personalised campaign were impressive; a 99% open rate, that generated a 30% conversions rate.
  • The Engage Hub platform not only gives KBC Bank the capability to reach out to its customers, but it is also used internally to communicate with the Staff.
  • KBC is now able to automate a whole host of mobile communications, ranging from when an account is opened, secure activation codes to avoid fraud, promotional coupons and all important App updates.

Retailers, don’t become another statistic!

2017 hasn’t exactly been the most promising year for the UK retail industry. With British retail sales posting their biggest quarterly fall in seven years for the first three months of 2017, along with news that twelve retailers had entered into administration by the end of March, you could argue that it’s all a bit doom and gloom for retailers right now.

“While I’ve got your attention…”

Just eight seconds. That’s how long the average human’s attention is held for. And when our attention span can be shorter than that of a goldfish, capturing consumers’ attention is no easy feat.

Stopping the financial fraudsters in their tracks

Fraud is a booming business and it was revealed last year that fraud could be costing the UK economy a shocking £193 billion per annum. The financial sector is a clear target for cyber criminals wanting to get their hands on valuable customer data and they’re getting pretty good at it too.

With banking, it’s personal.

As consumers, these days we only want to know what’s in it for us. We will no longer accept an onslaught of irrelevant messages and advertising. Although that might mean some industries will struggle, banks are in a fortunate position to understand their customers like no other business.
